I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. I really enjoyed this simple guide to photography. This book is definitely geared towards new photographers. I've been shooting for 10 years and already understood most of the concepts Carroll talked about. The photo examples really help you to understand what the author is talking about. He explains everything in simple language. If you've just bought a camera, this is a great place to start.
